IT'S BEGUN! Super rich Rupert Murdoch has announced plans to hold a summer tournament for Europe's top clubs, because Sky rule the world.
His idea is to get 16 of Europe's top clubs and make them play in a competition during the summer when they would usually be playing pre-season friendlies. The tournament will be global with teams playing games in LA, Shanghai and wherever else will pay top dollar. Basically the Champions League condensed and with its soul ripped out.
I think we should just get rid of all the teams in the world, except the good ones. I mean what's the point in all these teams like Huddersfield or Raith Rovers really? My local team is Aberdeen and unfortunately I will support them until I die, does anyone in China give a shit about Aberdeen? Most people in Aberdeen don't give a shit about Aberdeen. We will all just support Real Madrid or Bayern Munich and the 16 best teams will play each other six times a season -that's Rupert Murdoch's dream.
In fact, what's the point of having a league? We could just have like 100 cups throughout the season playing games in a different city every night, with celebrity referees and special guest appearances on the pitch. Imagine Rooney being subbed for Bruce Willis or Samuel L Jackson sending off Ronaldo? Get rid of goal posts and use lasers instead. The possibilities are endless if you sign up with Sky and all this for just £21 per month.
